Support Our Troops Ribbon on a Huge SUV

Does anyone else have an issue with seeing a SUPPORT OUR TROOPS ribbon on a huge SUV? IMO you cannot drive a huge SUV and really support the troops overseas. Aren't they over there so we can have an endless supply of oil in the USA? If you really support our troops, drive something more fuel efficient!

Now that you state it that way you kind of have a point there. But still there may be a reason that they are driving that thing (It is unlikely I know but possible)

C'mon, quit beatin' around the bush and tell us what you really think.

It's either that or Americans are so brainwashed that they believe driving a bloated moron-mobile upholds some kind of national heritage.

After all the news today about impending global climate change, and hearing the BigOil counter FUD ("there's no definitive scientific proof, blah, blah..."), anyone can recognize they're using the same kind of denial tactics the tobacco industry successfully used for decades to deny there was any bad health effects from their products.

"Support ribbon magnet makers in China"

The woman who owns this Huge SUV, lives with her one daughter. She has no good reason, except she likes a huge vehicle to drive. Just like I live alone and like a small vehicle, my Yaris.

I guess to some people, size matters.
